Subject: [gentoo-dev] xdvi and dvips not working as normal user...
Date: Thu, 29 Nov 2001 08:26:59
1 Hi all
3 I recently noticed that xdvi and dvips are not working correctly
4 when invoking them as normal user...
5 They look for fonts (and try to create them) in /var/cache/fonts
6 (which does not exist of course...) while the fonts are in
7 /usr/share/texmf/fonts. When invoked by root everything
8 works as usual (lots of output from kpathsea and metafont).
9 When this is done once users also can view/dvips a document.
10 But I suspect that the problem will arise again as soon as
11 kpathsea and metafont need to create something new...
13 regards
